Crews will be performing maintenance on transmission lines serving Wilbur, Almira and Creston

SPOKANE, Wash. – Nov. 16, 2006: Approximately 1,300 Avista customers in northwest Lincoln County will experience a disruption in their electrical service on Sunday, Nov. 19, 2006, from 6:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. as Avista crews perform maintenance work on transmission lines serving the towns of Wilbur, Almira and Creston, and the surrounding rural area.

The project will include replacing two existing poles with a taller single structure and replacing a cross-arm on a separate pole. The existing transmission lines must be taken out of service so that crews can safely perform the work
